    I think you maybe correct re: Phillips. My only issue is that he doesn't seem to be able to ride our track, always seems to get out of shape and never looks comfortable when on it, almost as though he is seeing it for the first time. If the line up is as people think and Phillips and potentially Wilkinson at reserve, we are going to be relying heavily on Wilko in my opinion. We will have to wait and see.

    Matej Zagar used to have the same problem. The signing of Jorgensen is not one that I would have gone for and don't think he will get the fans flocking back but we will have to see. So we have Wethers, Clegg, Jorgensen and Lunna with 3 left to go. Will be interesting to see who they are, no disrespect but hoping they are not Phillips (tried that route and it didn't work and I don't think he has improved as a rider) or Lindgren (needs a year away from Newcastle, feel he has gone stale). Top riders left appear to be Palm-Toft and Erik Riss, both of whom preform well around Brough, chances of getting both of them?? probably remote, but would like to get at least one. Baby Bjerre might be a good shout as George maybe able to sort him out, you never know. Looking forward to news of the next signing, I think the next 2 are make or break and feel they will determine whether we challenge or are also rans, Somerset already look strong contenders and potentially nailed on for the top spot, but speedway is a funny old game and you never can tell. Onwards to the next signing and 2019 our anniversary year.

    I didn't think Rene was doing the UK next year, isn't his girlfriend due to have a baby which I think has ruled him out or some other commitment? Might have just made that up but thought I have read it somewhere I wonder how much of cleanout Newcastle are going to have. Might be good to freshen the team up, obviously it will take new riders a while to get used to the track but might benefit all. I think Ludvig for one needs a change of scenery and I would like to see Rose back, not sure if he has finished with speedway.

    What about Palm-Toft, rides Brough well. Would be good to have Wells. Gutted Ash has gone, thought he was nailed on to come back.

    Reading the SS it sounds like his Polish commitments have ruled him out. I can't remember the quote word for word but George was suggesting that being a Sunday track and finding riders was difficult due to Polish commitments and they would have loved to have Tero back but his Polish commitments have put a stop to that.

    George English said in Speedway Star that Tero is ruled out due to Polish commitments, it was the edition with a big article on Lewis Kerr.

    Lets hope he is returning back to us to spearhead our charge to the title!!!

    I thought Stevie was looking to ride in Poland which is why he left us the last time. I would assume that would still be the case and therefore he would be ruled out?

    He's probably keeping it under his hat!!

    Well we can scratch Garrity (Scunthorpe) and Nicholls (Leicester) and Covatti from any proposed lineups, shame.

    As it is still silly season and nobody knows who is riding where, here is my ten penneths worth. Garrity 7.39 (with reduction) Covatti 6.56 Bach 7.19 Morris 5.44 (with reduction) Aarnio 6.57 Bowtell 2.35 (with reduction) A N Other 2.00 (not D Phillips although I think it will be him) Total 37.50 I have assumed British riders get a 2.5% reduction.

    Don't they race on a Saturday and haven't they just been relegated? I know they finished the league as the bottom club and I think they could not field a team on at least 1 occasion!!!
